Hello Wanderer,

Here is what I have been working on - a reverse of what you have been doing.

To keep things up to date in Puppy I thought about stripping down a Puppy - even cups and ffmpeg. I started with Peebee's Debian Stretch and then added Tiny core packages by converting them from tcz to sfs's by renaming them. They install to /usr/local/bin with libs installing to /usr/local/lib meaning they don't interfere with Puppys libs. and you use the boot manager or sfs on the fly to load and unload them which places the sfs in /mnt/home/

Tiny core has apps that are smaller and very handy like flaxpdf.

To strip the pup down I use the buildins utility.

I do all the deletions any that don't appear in that I use pfind to find all entries and go from there.

I produced one iso of a stripped down Stretch with some tiny core sfs.

https://archive.org/details/stretch7.5onebonek4.1.48
The third iso contains some tinycore apps and libs.

I moved from Puduan 7 the forgotten pup and stripped it down and did the same thing.

This means you have a pup which can be kept up to date as well as using other portable apps and static apps.

To strip down a pup do your deletions with buildins and manual deletion and then reboot having made a savefile.

then use the remaster program in your puppy. You must reboot after making the deletions.

Then you can get your tiny core programs here.

Download chosen app rename from tcz to sfs then use them like sfs's.

hi darry

very cool

a stripped down puppy system has been needed for a long time
thanks for doing this

it also is very helpful to the corepup system
since the idea and some of the components
will be interchangeable

i am reading your posts to figure out what exactly the specifics are

BTW, I'm still working on it, but in the shadows.

Hey Musher,

I'd rather see a Pup done properly like what you are doing than the current approach of release and move on before anything gets properly tested.

hi all

just a post to remind everyone of this system
and to encourage them to consider looking into it
if you are interested in a minimal modular base

on a further note

if fredx reads this

can your portable firefox
be made to work in corepup

i put it in upup(bb)
and it worked fine
even updating to the latest version

but it wont run in corepup
and i cannot figure out what dependencies are needed

Hi wanderer,

Maybe gtk3 is not installed? What is the message if you run the ff script from terminal ?

Fred

yes thanks andresC2

fredx has very kindly made an apulse for the firefox tcz
and has told me how to load everything
so we can always have the latest forefox that way

i was just wondering if i can make a completely portable firefox in a folder
like the one that works in upupbb

as a start
i am going to take fredx firefox
and run it to see what it asks for
